The primary goal of the Massachusetts Divorce Resource Center is to provide, in one central location, key websites that include a variety of divorce related material that may be of interest to our clients and the general public. While the internet is an amazing resource for divorce related material, it can also be a trap for those that decide to act on the material or complete forms without first seeking legal advise from a qualified divorce attorney. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Probate and Family Court urges you to consult with an attorney before attempting to complete any forms that they provide as there are consequences in signing them without proper legal representation.

Please feel free to contact me to set up an appointment to discuss any area of Family or Divorce Law that might be of interest to you.
